Christmas Donors and Volunteers
 Made Christmas Happen!
Traci Wood and her organization of charitable women (We Serve) collaborated with her HOA in Jacobs Reserve to provide personalized gifts for all residential clients.  

Donna Roberts and her Wednesday night Bible study group from TWUMC made beautiful personalized stockings for all the residents.

For all the day clients, Carmin Robuck purchased stockings, and Angela Hextell (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - The Woodlands 2nd Ward) filled them with candy and gifts and gift cards.

Jennifer Conley from FTN Financial provided backpacks filled with goodies and gifts for the day clients.

Amy Cuellar and The Woodlands College Park High School FFA Booster Club, with help from the fashion design classes, made lovely personalized blankets and pillows for the residents.

Brandi Red from Jamberry Nails provided gift bags for the all the resident ladies.

Rather than have their usual employee party, Sydney Newell and the Bank of America hosted a luncheon and gift exchange for Angel Reach clients after the bank closed on Dec. 23. All residents were invited.

Kristie Edge and her lovely family (husband and sister-in-law) kept up their holiday tradition by providing a delicious Christmas Eve dinner for all the residents who were not with families for the holidays. Their do-it-yourself nacho bar was a great hit!  

Lita Gregory provided the cute centerpieces for the Christmas Eve dinner.

Girls' Night Out in December

On Tuesday, December 8, the Girls Night Out group took a trip out to enjoy the Christmas lights around Conroe.Everyone had fun. We extend a very big "Thank You" to all of the volunteers that help organize, attend, and show our residents how to have fun and work together. You demonstrate great examples of caring.

Mentor Mentee Christmas Party
On Saturday, December 16, mentors and mentees joined together at TWUMC to celebrate Christmas with a BBQ lunch, games, and of course, presents. One of the games was a white elephant exchange with each person holding a wrapped gift. The game involved passing the gifts while listening to "The Night Before Christmas". Everyone enjoyed the fellowship! Thanks to Jenny Lee and others for their hard work in putting this important event together.
